Find a list of NDIS Orthoptist . There are currently some Orthoptist providers offering a range of services.
For individuals who have significant visual impairments, the NDIS provides access to orthoptist services. Orthoptists typically work within an eye care team directed by an ophthalmologist. They have a broad scope of expertise and are highly skilled in assessing and diagnosing eye movement disorders in children and adults. Orthoptists are also highly qualified in educating patients and making recommendations about how to effectively manage visual disabilities.
Many supports provided by orthoptists are eligible for NDIS funding. For example, someone who is trying to establish an NDIS plan can consult an orthoptist for a detailed visual assessment. In this assessment the orthoptist will examine visual fields, contrast sensitivity, ocular movements and more. He or she will then make a number of recommendations (including assistive technology if necessary), which are then used to create an individualised NDIS support plan.
